just got back from the scioto....i fished under hayden bridge...and this one guy was slaying crappies.

i caught a few small bass and the other guy next to me had tight lines out for cats and didnt see him reel anything in.


Griggs Reservoir below the dam is good for smallmouth bass.

Good luck

You are staying in a great location. Any bridge that crosses around S. Bloom. has decent access and great fish. White bass, smallies, saug-fish.

Sounds like you did very well. Another option is your less than 30 mins from Hargus. We are cooking up Crappie for dinner tonight from this weekend. Plenty of bass to be caught also. Good luck.

DUDE! thats great! I didn't even know it existed..... good crappie population huh? I might have to check it out after I get out of training one day this week. Location for the crappie? Whats the water temp? they spawning yet?

thats only 13.5 mi from where im staying. i could cast there! im gonna have to at least try. my buddy im staying with is meeting me at Bettell lake after he gets off work today. We have caught some fish there before, I won't keep them though.

Have fun fishing, but be carful in the car. South Bloomfield is a speed trap!
